“Sly Reimagined” with Global Noize feat. Jason Miles, Nona Hendryx, Maya Azucena, Falu & Cyro Baptista!

Keyboardist extraordinaire Jason Miles, who has worked with everyone from Miles Davis and Luther Vandross to Ivan Lins and Roberta Flack, created Global Noize as a free-wheeling collective, to create music that takes listeners on a wide-ranging journey. Over the course of several albums, guests have included Me’shell Ndegeocello, Billy Martin (Medeski, Marin & Wood), Vernon Reid (Living Color), John Popper (Blues Traveler), Bernie Worrell (Talking Heads, Parliament-Funkadelic) and Karl Denson.

The acclaimed new album, Sly Reimagined, features Sly & The Family Stone’s material reimagined by Jason Miles, with legendary singers Roberta Flack and Nona Hendryx, as well as Maya Azucena and Falu, and backed by a killer rhythm section​ that includes original Family Stone​ drummer Greg Errico, as well as​ horns and turntables. Concerts have been off the hook, prompting Bob Davis of Soul Patrol to call it, “one of the best concert experiences I have ever had. In fact it was so good I didn’t want it to end.”

Global Noize, which has been described as a hip and eclectic musical journey crossing all boundaries, is an organic, free-spirited sonic brew of some of the best elements of jazz, funk, electronica and world fusion – it’s music without borders. Miles concludes “When I hear music I love I want to be involved with it. It would be boring for me to stay in one place musically so I love to explore different music. I know Miles Davis felt that way and I’m just trying to keep the grooves hot, the melodies great and collaborate with the best artists I know. Hopefully we can bring Global Noize to the world and show people ​our musical vision.

Freddy V 

Fred’s role as AWB’s up-front soloist, supporting keyboardist and horn arranger has seen him touring clubs, theatres and festivals all over the world. This heavy workload permitting, Fred still found time for jamming, guesting or leading groups of fellow top drawer musicians in the best jazz and soul clubs in NYC, Atlanta (where he now resides) and, even, London where Fred’s very occasional British ‘pick up’ bands attracted players of the quality of Jason Rebello, Jim Mullen and Ash Soan, to name but a few.

In 2004, Fred was asked to take over the saxophone duties with vocalist Michael McDonald on the “Rock & Soul Revue” Tour. The vocal legend was so pleased with Freddy’s work that he asked him to play on his Motown II collection. Always a capable writer – Fred’s tunes have been recorded by not only AWB but also the likes of Grover Washington Jr and Marion Meadows.

MO Pleasure

Mo was keyboardist and musical director with saxophonist Najee and vocalists Philip Bailey, Patti Austin and Jon Lucien. In 1993, he joined the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire, becoming the band’s musical director a year later. Mo then elevated to another echelon when he was featured playing keyboards, trumpet, and guitar with Janet Jackson’s 2001 “All For You” tour. As a principal member of the group Devoted Spirits, he played keyboards for Jimi Hendrix’s 60th Birthday Celebration and the “Power of Soul: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix” tour. In 2009, as keyboardist for Michael Jackson’s highly anticipated “This Is It” tour, he performed at the pop legend’s memorial concert in Los Angeles. Along with the rest of the This Is It band, Mo is immortalized in the eponymously titled film, the best-selling musical.
